    Do any of you out in never land really think nobama has any intention of listening to what you or I think is the proper thing to do. Hell No HE Won’t! He and his backers have their agenda to accomplish and it will only stop with the total destruction of the US of A. He can’t tank the dollar if he doesn’t
    keep spending. He has to spend to be able to show a need to
    borrow which puts the US deeper in debt. Doesn’t take a genius to see what he is trying to accomplish.
